Below optional upgrade licence available to upgrade the number of access point support per device:
- DWC-1000-AP6-LIC: 6 access points support upgrade for DWC-1000
- DWC-1000-VPN-LIC: VPN security service pack for DWC-1000

The D-Link DWC-1000 Wireless Controller is a centralised wireless LAN manager developed specifically for campuses, branch offices, and businesses that are looking for an easy to use, scalable solution to manage and configure their wireless network. The DWC-1000 is also an ideal solution for businesses that wants to provide guest wireless Internet access in public locations. With the ability to manage up to six wireless Access Points (upgradable to 12) and a maximum of 48 wireless Access Points in a Controller Cluster, the DWC-1000 is a cost-effective mobility solution for small to medium-scale environments. Its auto-managed AP discovery and single point management allow customers to acquire an enterprise class system without the burden of executing massive and complex configurations. With a robust and comprehensive security detection  system, the DWC-1000 also enables managed APs to block potential attacks from unauthorised users and devices, especially for wireless environments. The Guest Management service can generate accounts, control usage and manage access security to allow businesses to provide easy to set up yet secure wireless Internet access in public locations such as hotels, coffee shops or airports.

Robust and Optimised Network

The DWC-1000 features a self-organizing, self-optimizing, and self-healing network capability to increase the stability of the entire wireless network. With scheduled-based wireless frequency scanning and performance analysing, the DWC-1000 automatically adjusts wireless frequency channels and power periodically to avoid interference and keep the wireless network in an optimised state. For a sudden RF signal vacuum created by any faulty Access Point, the DWC-1000 will increase the transmit output power of neighbouring Access Points to expand radiofrequency (RF) coverage.

Comprehensive Security

The DWC-1000 provides a comprehensive wireless security solution for any network. Empowered by a Wireless Instruction Detection System (WIDS), the DWC-1000 detects rogue Access Points and rogue clients as well as anticipates wireless threats, preventing any potential damage and illegal access. In addition to other fundamental wireless security features including WEP, WPA Personal/Enterprise, WPA2 Personal/Enterprise, and MAC Authentication to determine the identity of wireless devices, the Captive Portal feature allows you to block clients from accessing the network until the clients verify their identities. This double-layer authentication and authorisation provides a robust security fence to also protect against attacks from within the network.

High Scalability, Availability, and Flexibility

Many businesses are frequently changing in terms of size and organisational structure. To address such changing needs, the DWC 1000 administrators the opportunity to purchase licenses to upgrade the DWC-1000's capabilities. D-Link offers two types of licenses: an AP license upgrade and a VPN license upgrade. The AP license upgrade increases the number of manageable access points by six, to a maximum of 12 Access Points. The VPN license upgrade enables the DWC-1000 to provide VPN, Router, and Firewall functionality. The firewall function allows administrators to control network access by setting classification policies. The dual Option ports provide link failover and provide Internet connection redundancy to ensure Internet access. The virtual private network (VPN) features provide secure remote control to manage access points in branch offices. Site-to-site VPN tunnels use IP Security (IPSec) Protocol, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to facilitate branch office connectivity through encrypted virtual links. In addition, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN tunnels empower your mobile workers by providing remote access to a central corporate database. Both license options offer scalability, flexibility and increased functionality for potential business growth.

Simplified Management

Centralised remote control of managed access points provide a simple way to automatically discover compatible D-Link Wireless Access Points, add them into the managed access point list, and configure them with one-time configuration dispatch settings. With the controller clustering feature, the administrator can easily log into one wireless controller and perform essential configurations on others within the group. The real-time monitoring of access points and associated client stations enable the efficient utilisation of network resources. System alarms and statistics reports on managed access points also help the administrator to use the DWC- 1000 to manage, control, and optimise network performance. Furthermore, the DWC-1000 supports various D-Link indoor managed Access Points, including dual band and single band.
